  • COLUMN: A big-time football lesson

    The playoff pairings showed Anderson County was hosting a playoff football game Friday night.

    Could have fooled me.

    I even checked the mileage on my car. The odometer had barely moved since I left my office on the hill across Highway 127 from Anderson County High School. Apparently, I had worked the game at Warford Stadium, but I could have sworn I had been to Cooper High School, just outside Cincinnati.

  • Stellar pick
  • Cooper ends Bearcat dreams of a repeat

    It was not your typical de-throning. Not by a long shot.

    There was nothing fancy. There were no last-second shenanigans. It was total domination.

    Cooper, the new kid on the block, but one steeped in football tradition, did not just end what many thought was Anderson County's legitimate shot at repeating as Region 3 champions Friday night. The visitors from northern Kentucky quickly smashed that thinking, leaving no doubt who would advance to the second round of the Class 5A playoffs with a 48-0 thrashing.

  • Republicans win big in Anderson County

    Incumbent state Rep. Kim King (R-Harrodsburg) soundly defeated challenger Kent Stevens (D-Lawrenceburg) in unofficial results from Anderson County in Tuesday’s election, 55 to 45 percent.

    Andy Barr, the Republican challenger to incumbent Congressman Ben Chandler, soundly defeated him in Anderson County as well, 56 to 48 percent.

    In the city council election, incumbent Steven Rucker was the only seated council member to lose and will be replaced by George Geoghegan.

    For school board, Donna Drury defeated incumbent Steve Higgins.

  • Early voters packing precincts

    A cold but clear morning has voters flocking to polling places at the middle and high schools.

    When the polls at both locations opened at 6 a.m., lines were already forming and both parking lots were already at or near capacity.

    County Clerk Jason Denny predicted last week that if the weather was decent voter turnout in Anderson County could reach as high as 70 percent, a 5 percent increase from the presidential election in 2008.

  • FOOTBALL: Cooper thrashes Bearcats in playoff opener

     

    There was no secret to Cooper's 48-0 thrashing of Anderson County in the first round of the state Class 5A football playoffs Friday night.

    Cooper made the plays and held on to the ball. Anderson turned the ball over six times and its normally high-powered offense could generate little.

  • In times of spiritual questioning, rely on an unchangeable God

    Do you ever question your own salvation?  I know I do.  My own personal sin and rebellion against God often haunts me.  I think doubting one’s own salvation borders on sin itself if it applies to a Christian. I think every Christian experiences this in the Christian growth process.  
    In the book “Returning to Holiness” by Gregory Frizzell, he states, “You can make no spiritual progress until you’re absolutely certain of your relationship to Christ
